I started this bench last week. It’s just a simple oak bench with pocket hole joints. Once I finished the frame with a dark red walnut finish, I used nylon straps to weave the top. The nylon is held on with upholstery staples. It was a fun little project, and I thought it would be a nice one to introduce myself into the LJ community.

Thanks for looking.

The weave looks really tight. I bet it is comfortable.

Welcome to the fold.

Andy – Upholstery staples and a pair of pliers for leverage. It really didn’t take much time to make the weave.

Robert – Thanks so much!
